* DECD Australian Curriculum: Geography and history resources worth a look! 

DECD in South Australia has recently launched their "Making the Australian Curriculum work for us' resource to support the teaching and learning of the Australian Curriculum: Geography. The DECD site has a range of geographical bits and pieces referenced in this blog posting. They are certainly worth a look! 

As you can see below the resource to date includes a creative animation, broadsheets on the curriculum and 'talking heads'. I understand there will be plenty more useful things to come.  It is great to see a jurisdiction doing such high quality and innovative work to support the  implementation of geography and history in South Australian schools and inevitably beyond.
